Published In: New Zealand, 01 May 2008

Peter Leitch, aka The Mad Butcher, is a legend in his own lifetime - a larger-than-life character who left school at 15 and went on to build a nationwide chain of successful butchers shops and a reputation as a foul-mouthed league supporter with a heart of gold. Behind the scenes he contributed time, money, energy and his heart and soul to countless charities and good causes, while in public he championed rugby league and his beloved Kiwis and Warriors through thick and thin. For the first time he has allowed close friend Phil Gifford to write about what his friends have always known - the story of the private family man and grandfather who has embodied the Kiwi dream. In an era of corporate highfliers, business degrees and the old boys network, the working class boy from the Hutt Valley succeeded with hard work, a handshake and a belief that a man's wod was his bond. In a revealing glimpse into the private world of the Mad Butcher, Phil Gifford reveals just what makes the Butcher tick and made hime the King of the Sausage Sizzle and everybody's mate.
